Stock Tank Pools Are This Summer’s Hottest Trend and I Need One

Last year we had to move from our country home. We had plans to do a stock pool there for this summer. Anyhow, I think we could still make it happen here at our new home. Have you ever thought about making one?

It really isn’t hard and right now with everything still being shut down in the world, we need things for our families to do at home. If you can’t get a regular pool, this stock tank pools are the perfect substitute!


I mean a “real” pool is going to cost you anywhere from $20,000 on up. I don’t know about you, but I do not have that kind of money! A stock tank pool is much less expensive.


More and more, we see our customers turning to this innovative solution as a way to enjoy many of the benefits of a pool without the high cost.

Stock tanks are normally used for water for livestock. You’ll often notice them out in pastures for horses and cattle. They come in many different sizes to fit different needs.


They are really affordable, especially when comparing to the cost of a traditional pool. They are also super easy to get set up. No holes to dig! Just find a smooth level area to place it.


Then you can seal it and also add a pool pump to help you keep it nice and clean. If you don’t use a pool filter and pool chemicals (chlorine), then you would have to drain it way too often.


Now, if you wanted to, you could install it as an inground pool. You could build out a patio area around it! They look beautiful, but that is added work as well as an added cost.


You can also paint them! You don’t have to of course, but I have come across some that were painted and they look awesome! I especially love this one!


For a basic stock pool set up it will cost you less than $400 for the stock tank depending on the size and about $89 for a pool pump!

With these being this year’s hottest summer trend, it sounds like a plan to me!
